Topic: iRoast 2 temp probe issues and another solution w a (43 lines)
1) From: Rbt Tut
Ive had my iRoast 2 for about a year, having moved to it from my CafeRoasto.
I eventually got the temp probe from Tom and got expert advice here on how
to worm the braded probe into the bean area.
it worked very well for me a number of times but for the last 6 roasts or so
its been way off:
I check the probe in boiling water and it was measuring correctly.
I then thought about it as it makes a big difference to my taste buds 5
degrees for espresso and color alone was not giving me what Im looking for;
 445 degrees.
I have a thermapen 5, which I recommend to all serious cooks as one of the
finest items made:http://www.thermoworks.com/products/thermapen/tpen_home.htmlthey are a little  cheaper now then when I got it but its really by far and
away the best!
I drilled a whole in the metal chaff collector exactly 1 " from the rim to
the same size as the shaft of the thermapen and then another whole in the
screen at the top a little smaller so the shaft of the pen fits snuggly.
your leaway to get to the beans is minimal but if you have a good bit and
drill its easy to do.
It works fantastically.  Id send a pic but not sure how to get the
resolution down for this list.
if your have the thermapen Id be happy to try to send some pics.
now back to reliable fantastic coffee form T&M's!
cheers
